I don't think we would ever return to this place! I mean we ordered some wine and cheese and ham selection and waited over one hour as if these required any work at all. Additionally, the waitress wasn't kind at all. I would never recommend it.

As the building is large and right in the middle of the street we had to see what this was. On the top floor we found this bar/restaurant. The interior was different, but nice and we enjoyed our drinks. The price was good, but the service could be better.

After waiting approximately 20 minutes, we tried to order but the waitress was downright rude, we walked out, shame because this place is an amazing building and has so much potential, so many people fed up waiting for their food, it needs staffing anda manager to make this place work. Would return when they get their act together.

A last minute decision to go here based on TA reviews. Waiter took an age to bring a menu and only brought bread when asked. Mixed starters were ok Meat Croquettes in mustard sauce good. Main of Veal cutlet was average as meat was very tough and sinewy. We were shocked to find a couple a few tables away smoking... More

Although the beef was very good, both for steak sandwich and skewer, the prices are very reasonable and the location is top, I would not come back here. The organisation was a mess. Had to wait 55 minutes for the order. Other people had to wait 20 Minutes before an order was even taken. Orders came to table that had... More

We ate here as a family, everyone found something they wanted to eat and a fairly good vegetarian selection. Nice and relaxed environment and cool vibes. Food was tasty but service was very slow considering there wasn't many people in, may have been because we were in quite early? I forgot my bag when we left and had to go... More

Pleasant structure, with picturesque interior decoration and very large space for guests. Interesting mix of international dishes , although , in the market , more regional specialities sholub be better appreciated. Excellent beer ty for vegetarian also. Don't be in hurry in this place , service not so fast!!!

Lots of waiting time for an almost empty place, the waiter was extremely rude dictating where we should sit - a small awkward table near the kitchen when there were many other tables available. The cherry on the cake was when he said that I wasn’t in my country, so basically I should follow his rules.. seriously?? This was one... More

Decided to go here, as not many other options around on Sunday lunchtime. Went in with my Brazilian partner, went to the 'manager' and pointed to a table where we wanted to sit (the place was half full) he said no, that's for 4....it wasn't, it was ample for 2, then we said ok what about here - next to...

We found this by accident and decided to stop for a snack. Great atmosphere. Busy but not too crowded. Good service. Comfortable seating as well as tables for eating.
